TV Note: Gilmore Girls' to make gains from boost in ratings

Tuesday, February 27, 2001

By Rob Owen, Post-Gazette TV Editor

It's taken some time, but The WB's "Gilmore Girls" is finally getting some traction in the ratings. To give it a bigger boost still, the critically acclaimed drama with a sense of humor will air original episodes in its 8 p.m. Thursday time slot through at least March 22. Reruns will air at 9 p.m. Monday on WCWB beginning next week.

"Gilmore Girls" displaces "Roswell," which would have been in reruns anyway, until mid-April. The thinking is family-friendly "7th Heaven" might be a good lead-in for "Gilmore Girls," a multigenerational drama that focuses on a mother and daughter who are only 16 years apart in age.

CASTING ABOUT: Mark-Paul Gosselaar, who starred in the NBC Saturday morning show "Saved by the Bell" before the prime-time flops "Hyperion Bay" and "D.C.," will join the cast of "NYPD Blue" for 13 episodes next season.

"HOMICIDE" MOVIE: For all those viewers who called in all panicky after missing the premiere of "Homicide: The Movie" last season, NBC has heard your cries.

The TV film that wrapped up the acclaimed drama series "Homicide: Life on the Street" will be rebroadcast March 25 at 9 p.m.
